Vector Unit is finally ready to release Riptide GP: Renegade, and they’ve announced a release date. Riptide GP: Renegade will launch on PS4 and Steam on July 26th, with Apple TV, NVIDIA Shield/Android TV on August 2nd. It is also slated to release on Xbox One, Windows 10, iOS & Android Devices at a later date.
The racing game will run $14.99 on PS4, Xbox One, Steam, and Windows 10. The Apple TV and NVIDIA Shield TV versions will cost $9.99. We originally wrote about this game back at PAX Prime, and you can check out our preview right here. A quick reminder that Riptide GP: Renegade is a fast paced, water racing game in which you blast your way to the finish, using stunts and skill to get their first.
There are several Riptide games in the franchise, however this is the first one to be completely built from the ground up for modern consoles in 1080p at 60 frames per second. A work from the CEO and Creative Director Matt Small:
“With Riptide GP: Renegade, we’ve cranked up the action to make it more of a classic arcade racer… It still has the speed and dynamic water that players love. But the races are bigger and more explosive, with transforming vehicles, interactive obstacles, and secret shortcuts.”
As far as what is available to you in the game, there is a single player Career mode, online racing (up to 8 players), ghost racing challenges, and split screen local multiplayer. There’s definitely a lot of content in this game and given the local and online multiplayer aspect, it’s definitely going to be a fun one to race against your friends for the best scores. Mark your calendars for July 26th if you’re on PS4 and Steam, and keep your eyes peeled for this game.
